It’s been a tough week for our TIU California girls and your outpouring of love and support has truly warmed our hearts. It’s incredible to see our #TIUCommunity lift each other up ~ we are so much stronger together! We are #TIUStrong!

And today’s workout, from our very own California babe Chyna, is designed to stoke that inner strength. In one super-efficient, total-body strength workout, you’ll tone your gorgeous legs, booty, arms, chest, core, and so much more. (Check out alllll the amazing benefits of weight training HERE.)

Side Lunge + Curtsy Lunge + Curl

Sculpts your booty, legs, and arms.

Begin standing with feet together, toes pointed forward, holding a dumbbell in each hand at your shoulders. Take a big step to your right with your right foot, as you sit back in your hips and extend your left leg straight. Come back up to standing, engaging your booty and core. Next, step your right foot behind you and to the left, so that your thighs cross. Lower straight down, bending at the knees, as you lower the dumbbells down to your sides. Come back up to standing as you curl the dumbbells up to shoulder height.

Do 12 reps on each side.

Single Leg Deadlift + Press

Sculpts your booty, legs, shoulders, and core.  

Standing with feet together and a dumbbell in each hand at your sides, palms facing in, shift your weight to your left foot. Hinge at the hips, bringing your chest parallel to the ground, as you reach the dumbbells toward your standing foot and extend your left leg behind you. Come back up to start position, then curl the dumbbells to shoulder height before pressing them overhead.

Do 12 reps on each side.

Triangle Oblique Reach

Tones your obliques and shoulders.

Holding a dumbbell in each hand, step your feet about 3-4 feet apart, right foot pointed toward the top of your mat and left foot pivoted slightly inward. Extend your right arm overhead and turn your gaze toward it. Lengthen through the spine, reach as far forward as you can, and tilt your torso toward the ground as you reach your left arm to your left foot. Return to start position and repeat.

Do 12 reps on each side.

Side to Side Squat

Sculpts your booty and legs.

Standing with feet hip-width apart, holding a dumbbell in each hand at shoulder height, lower into a squat position. Step your right foot to the right, then back to center. Step your left foot to the left, then back to center. Continue alternating sides while staying low in your squat.

Do 12 reps on each side.

Superwoman Push-Up

Sculpts your chest, back, and core.

Begin in a plank position with your shoulders stacked above your wrists and body in a straight line from head to toe. Engage your core as you slowly lower your body to the ground with control. Release your hands and extend them out in front of you. Next, lift your arms and legs 6-8 inches off the ground into a superwoman position. Lower arms and legs back to the ground and press back up into plank position.

Do 12 reps.

Flutter Kicks

Tones your entire core.

Begin seated on the ground with legs extended straight in front of you. Lean back into a supported reclining position, propped up with your forearms flat on the ground behind you. With your entire core engaged, lift your feet a couple inches off the ground. Raise your right foot up to 45 degrees, then lower as you raise your left foot. Continue alternating.

Do 12 reps on each side.
